Vicious circle

Last updated
Not a great deal to report lately, found the markets a little of a struggle again… hence the vicious circle, it would seem i consistently build on my confidence and my profits grow trending steadily to be shortly followed by a sharp blow (like last saturday – previous post) this then has a knock on effect with my mental state and performance and as ‘sods law’ goes each and every time this happens it would seem other distractions appear in day to day life that take trading time off me…. the result being confidence blow followed by frustration and lack of time, its really quite dificult to break the cycle at times im sure much like last month ill get my act together again sooner or later but its really quite frustrating… im just wondering how many times it will take before this sequence of events will begin to fade?!?! But it wont beat me… as Thomas Edison once said;

“Many of lifes failures are people who did not realise how close they were to success when they gave up”

  1. 🙂 I always repeat this sentence when facing drawn down in my trading. Probably it helps me to not quit trading at all.

  2. Nice quote, sums things up very well. With trading we’re playing with such a small margin any mistakes are likely to go against you so you need your eye on the ball at all times. Too many people overreact to those errors and completely throw away all the good work they’ve put in
